While other universities have been back in session for a while now, we’re just getting started here at Caltech. Today begins our orientation week, so we have lots of new grads and postdocs showing up these days!
So, I wanted to use this post to give an official welcome to the new RSRG students (John Pang, Rachel Cummings, and Linqi Guo) and the new CMI postdocs (Quentin Berthet, Georgios Piliouras, Krishnamurthy Dvijotham, and Piyush Srivastava). Welcome all!
And, we’re especially excited that we have three new faculty joining this fall: Yisong Yue, Thomas Vidick, and Victoria Kostina. Yisong and Thomas are finally joining us after deferring for postdocs, while Victoria is fresh off of last year’s job market. Being such a small place, we’re not used to having so many new faces join at once, so it’s quite exciting: welcome Yisong, Thomas, and Victoria!
…and for those readers who are going on to the job market this year. Don’t worry, we’ll be searching for new faculty again in the coming year too!
